Theory of Family Relativity Example:
There may be just one or multiple paths that were taken to come up with your theories. The more paths you have, the stronger the reliability of the proposed relationship. The example below is a confirmed, by me, theory, which has 5 paths that were used to come up with the theory. You can toggle between the paths, to see the details of each.
Confirming or Rejecting Your Theory:
It is very important to confirm or reject your theory. By doing so, it will not only keep you organized, but it will also help to fine tune the algorithm. Don't worry if you've made a mistake confirming it; you can always undo it. 😉
My Personal Experience with Theory of Family Relativity:
I've got to say, after checking out many of my known matches, they are ALL on point, which gives me hope for my unknown mathces! 😉
